2011 Edit

First wave McDonald YJ toys

Young Justice "Happy Meal" toys (L-R): Robin, Batman, Superboy, Superman, Aqualad, Black Manta, Kid Flash, and Captain Cold.

McDonald's first promotion for Young Justice featured eight different figures of characters from the show, incorporating various gimmicks into them. The promotion featured no female characters at all, despite there being two on the Team, which caught the attention of both fans[1][2] and producer Greg Weisman.[3] The Littlest Pet Shop was the promotion for girls.

The Young Justice figures available in the first wave are:

  • Kid Flash, with simulated running rolling base;
  • Robin, with missile-launching motorcycle;
  • Batman, with cape flapping action;
  • Superman, with dual arm smashing action;
  • Superboy, with light-up eyes and chest symbol, plus arm smashing action;
  • Captain Cold, with ice missile firing gun;
  • Black Manta, with light-up eyes; and
  • Aqualad, with light-up arm decoration.
